I’m so behind on photos and blogs, so I’m just gonna go for it.
We finally had a birthday party for Elise with her friends. Her first one! She had her friends from church plus the neighbors and her sisters. It was a Tinkerbell Party at the park, despite the cool weather. The girls played, made fairy wings, ate cake, and had lots of fun!
On Father’s Day we had my folks and my grandma over for Sunday lunch and made tacos. I think we actually did the same thing last year. Ed fried corn tortillas and everybody gobbled it up. Gave my dad and Ed some presents…
My two favorite guys with four of my favorite girls. See their wall-hangings? Courtesy of Treasury of Memories. “Dad Rocks” and “Grandpa Rocks”. So cute. For their office-areas.
Ed’s been begging for a new profile pic for Facebook. This oughta work, right?
On Tuesday I met up with my God-send friend, Tracey. You can read about how I met her by clicking here. Yes, I went to Canada to see her. Yes, that is a Tim Horton’s behind her. Yes, I had their coffee and their donuts. Twice. In 3 hours. I hate to admit it, but yes, it’s delicious. It’s no Woods, but it was seriously good coffee. I brought home donut holes, (properly known as “Timbits”) to my family. I am now allowed to go to Canada anytime I want.
Strawberry season is in full swing. YUM-A-LICIOUS! I found a new recipe for strawberry shortcake, which was soooooo melt-in-your-mouth good.
No, Becca is not dressed up as Native American here. She is an Egyptian Princess, of course! She was invited to go to a Bible School (which for some reason they called “day camp” and which I thought was weird, so I just called it Bible School) at a local church with our neighbor. SHE. LOVED. IT. Every minute. She sobbed and sobbed when it was over. On the last night they had a little program and the kids sang songs and the leaders told all about what they had done all week. It looked like it was a very well-run Bible School, so I’m guessing we’ll be doing that one again if it works out.
On Saturday my folks took the girls berry picking. Look at all that berry-liciousness!
My new most favorite-ist thing to do with strawberries these days is freeze them whole on a cookie sheet. Once they’re frozen, I slide them into freezer gallon bags. Then, whenever I want, I take out a handful, throw them in the blender with some vanilla yogurt and viola! A yummmmmmmmy smoothie!
